Doctors recommend that people laugh at least eight times a day, lest the pent-up yuks collect in the body's whoopee cushions and make sitting down both uncomfortable and embarrassing. Use laughter of the front to prevent laughter of the rear with today's Groupon: for $27, you get two tickets and $30 worth of bar fare (a $60 value), at Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland. This Groupon is valid for all shows listed on the ticket page except for those labeled Special Event.
Owned and operated by husband-and-wife comics Dave and Angela Dennison, Laughs Comedy Spot supplements its sundry cackles, chuckles, and chortles with a full bar and menu of simple American fare. Tune your ears to a variety of stand-up comedians who grace the stage every week, or sample fledgling humor wares at an open-mike event. Audiences can giggle over a plate of nachos piled high with jalapeños, beans, chili, cheese, and chicken or beef ($9.50), or dig into fettuccine ($8) or a teriyaki-mushroom burger ($10). Savor an ice-cream sundae as you savor the amusing fruits of each comedian's unique set of psychological baggage ($5). Of course, nothing keeps the good times rolling like good old-fashioned funny juice, be it a margarita ($11), manhattan ($9), beer ($4+), or bottle of wine (up to $40). The newly remodeled 200-seat theater features a state-of-the-art sound system and unobstructed views of the stage.
